The world renowned Reconciliation Quilt is coming to Homestead National Monument of America from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This prestigious quilt will be on display from May 4 - June 16, 2013 in the Monument's Heritage Center.
Lucinda Ward Honstain of Brooklyn, New York made this exquisite quilt in 1867 shortly after the Civil War. The quilt consists of 40 unique blocks depicting scenes of hope and compassion as the country began to reunite and heal. The bright and vibrant colors reflect the nation's optimism as the United States was moving past its darkest years. The quilt is a timeless piece of American folk art, shown only on a limited basis.
